I remembered my lunch this morning. As I was getting off the highway looking at my office, I remembered that it was sitting in the refrigerator at home. At least I remembered it right? I even said this morning that I wanted to remember it. I guess next time, I’ll have to add that I want to remember it before I leave the house.

Now I get to try and figure out how to get a healthy meal on short notice. It’s so much easier to find crap to shovel down my gullet than it is to find a tasty and healthy meal. Wish me luck.

Braising is one of the most beautiful ways on earth to take a tougher cut of meat and turn it into flesh flavored candy. Enjoy the following video.

After some serious thinking and soul searching, I’ve realized that I need to get back to my roots. Having seen the strength and bravery of their leadership at the municipal, state and federal levels over the last few months,  I couldn’t help but be inspired by the new version of the Republican party. They really are trying everything they can to fix something big problems and their innovative approach is refreshing after so many decades of the status quo. I was raised in a solid conservative home and the values and ideals that are driving today’s Republican leaders are the same as those I grew up with. This decision just feels right.

I had a good run at doing my best to be a northeastern liberal but I’ve never truly felt comfortable in that role. Every time I would consider the cause de jour from the liberal perspective, there was always this voice in the back of my head saying, “you know that’s not right”. I can ignore that voice no more. I know this will come as a shock to many of my liberal friends so all I can do is ask that they be open and accept my conservatism as an exercise in diversity.

To my many conservative friends and family members,  I must confess that it feels great to finally get that off of my chest. I know what the prodigal son must have felt as he returned home after being away for so many years. I’ll continue to blog about my life and my thoughts but I’m probably going to have to come up with a new name for the blog.  Suggestions? I’m thinking of something like RedinBlue.com to talk about how it feels to be a conservative in New England. There’s a lot of material to cover in a topic like that. I’ll also be focusing on publishing some recipes for red meats. I’ll still try to make them healthy recipes but the fact is that there’s no way a vegetarian dish can ever beat a medium-rare steak for flavor and raw visceral power. This is gonna rock!

Save The Date

It’s time to run up your credit cards to the max and live it up everybody. Apparently, the end of the world is coming very soon. In fact, as early as May 21 2011. I’ve personally seen a number of these types of predicions in different forms over the years. The thing that surprises me about this movement is that they set the date so close to the present day. Usually if you want to drum up a lot of fear and paranoia about something, you want to give yourself a bit more leeway to get the ball rolling. Look how long we’ve been hearing about the Mayan 2012 thing. They’ve been working that date for years now. There isn’t even enough time to put out a straight to video disaster movie about 5/21/2011.

Personally, I find this particular “beware the upcoming apocalypse” trend to be amusing because its a great blend of tools from the impending doomsday arsenal: rapture, numerology, dispensationalism and biblical literalism.

Its stuff like this that puts the “mental” back in fundamentalism.
